BOCA RATON, FL (November 20, 2017) – Florida Atlantic University’s Department of Theater and Dance in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters presents “The Rivals,” a comedy by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, which runs from Friday, Feb. 16 through Sunday, Feb. 25 in Studio One on FAU’s Boca Raton campus at 777 Glades Road. Tickets are $22 and can be purchased at www.fauevents.com or by calling 1-800-564-9539.

Sheridan’s comic masterpiece, The Rivals, is a raucous comedy of manners that spins its tale around two couples who are thwarted on their way to matrimony. Featuring some of theatre’s great comic characters – the windbag Sir Anthony Absolute and the foolish Mrs. Malaprop – “The Rivals” is an uproariously funny feast that satisfies many a lusty appetite all while poking good fun at our superficial, narcissistic, preening times.
